Ma chérie Isabelle
Je suis heureux que vous avez trouvé cette photo!
Oui, c'est exactement ce que le conducteur voit, la courbe de la piste, le pont, le signal ..
Very cool cab shot (foot plate shot), Peter! PM
Thanks very much for your visit.
Sorry for delay in reply, I've been away.
I'm glad you like it. I thought I would try something a little different!
Well this one is a bit easier to work out (probably)~ I'd guess hand out the side of the cab a little and fire away. I spent ages this morning looking on GE etc to try and understand the track layout to appreciate the angles involved. Anyway enough waffle ~ another nice shot here of course Peter ~ All the best ~ nick
Sorry for late response, been away (but not with camera). Thank you very much for the nice words. Anyhow, you are pretty close in what you have said. City of Truro has a small taper boiler, so to include the smoke box, I had to almost fall out! (and to pick the spot with the coaches reflected against the firebox, and the signal visible...) The obvious shot through the drivers window didn't work, because it is very difficult to get close enough due to the rear driving wheel splashers, and the amount of dirt on the window! At the end of the day it gave a presentable, if not spectacular picture, and I thank you for giving it serious thought.
Hi Blazergirl, Thank you for looking, and for your nice thoughts. As I said to Nick, it wasn't an easy shot, and probably not the best ever taken, but I thought it was worth a try. I'm glad that you have enjoyed it.
